A weight lifted...

Sometimes I just let myself get way too bogged down with worry. I worry about absolutely everything and if you were to ask my husband he would whole heartedly agree. Lately, there have been many, many, many things with our families and I have let myself stress out about it way too much. It's affecting my mental, emotional, and physical health. So after a long drawn out dramatic crying session to my husband....I'm letting go of the things out of my control. I cannot control what certain people choose to do or more importantly not to with their own bodies. I cannot make choices for them. I have my life and am making my own choices. Even when the decisions they make are obviously bad ones, it's their lives to lead. So, I'm taking Jenn's advice and I'm letting go. I have to...life's too short to be angry and bitter. I know that God would want me to be supportive of these people, and I can't be that person when I let the bitterness take over. There's a song played on 90.7 and I heard it this morning and it really makes alot of sense.


I'm Letting Go" Lyrics
by
Francesca Battistelli from the album My Paper Heart

My heart beats, standing on the edge
But my feet have finally left the ledge
Like an acrobat
There’s no turning back
I’m letting go
Of the life I planned for me
And my dreams
Losing controlOf my destiny
Feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
So I’m letting go
This is a giant leap of faith
Trusting and trying to embrace
The fear of the unknown
Beyond my comfort zone
I’m letting go
Of the life I planned for me
And my dreams
Losing controlOf my destiny
Feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
So I’m letting go
Giving in to your gravity
Knowing You are holding me
I’m not afraid
Feels like I’m falling and that’s what it’s like to believe
Feels like I’m falling and this is the life for me
